Giving back to the community is an important part of who we are.
Giving back to the community is probably one of the most commendable and rewarding things a person can do and can also be infectious if commonly practiced.
At Strictly Carpet & Flooring, we strive to give back to the community when given the opportunity. Whether it be a donation of carpet remnants or flooring to local schools or daycare facilities for their classrooms, playrooms, plays, projects, etc., supporting CASA Kendall County or monetary donations towards local youth sports clubs, we feel that giving back to the community in any way is very important and shows how thankful we are for the support we receive from our community.
We support local, family owned and small businesses!
At Strictly Carpet & Flooring, we like to support local businesses and do so as often as possible.
When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community. Local business owners often have incentive to support other local businesses, patronizing local establishments for both business and personal reasons. Chain businesses, on the other hand, tend to get their supplies from corporate, as well as having store managers and employees that aren’t as personally invested in buying local.
When you personally know the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have. Along with the rest of the community, you celebrate when a favorite local business succeeds, and you mourn when it’s forced to shut its doors. This personal investment isn’t quite as present when a chain business closes, aside from feeling disappointment that you have fewer businesses within convenient driving distance.
Local businesses give a community its flavor. Towns across America have similar chain restaurants, grocery, and department stores but that diner down the street where you have breakfast every Saturday morning is one-of-a-kind. The combined presence of your town’s many local businesses makes it different from every other city in the world. By supporting those businesses instead of chains, you ensure that uniqueness is preserved as a part of your community. When you shop local, the business owner is usually directly connected to every employee in the store. That leads to a personal approach that often means any problem you have is taken seriously.
Having the owner nearby also means that owner personally knows his customers, which in turn almost always means better customer service all around from start to finish. He knows the products you buy or the services you request on a regular basis and can tailor services to make your experience even better.
Buying local has benefits beyond mere convenience. When you support local business owners, you get a better level of service, as well as helping make your community a better place to live. This is in addition to the health benefits and access to unique products that you usually can’t find with chain locations.
We properly recycle and dispose of old carpet and padding materials.
Strictly Carpet & Flooring does its part in being environmentally friendly. Recycling has come a long way in the last few decades, and it has infiltrated everywhere as it is environment friendly and cost effective. Carpet pad recycling has helped to make even getting rid of your carpet pad safer for the environment by keeping it out of the local landfill. It is estimated that approximately 125 million tons is thrown away each and every year, just in residential areas. This large amount of waste can be recycled into other products to help keep them out of the landfill. Unfortunately, carpet pad recycling is not as widespread as you may think, or would like. Most people don’t think much about it, simply because it is not widely discussed. There are also people who have no knowledge of recycling carpet pads and their benefits.
We use Green Label Plus materials.
The carpet industry has a long history of creating products that provide numerous benefits, especially for indoor air quality. Today, indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important environmental consideration, especially since we spend approximately 90 percent of our time indoors. In 1992, CRI (Carpet & Rug Institute) launched its Green Label program to test carpet, cushions, and adhesives to help specifiers identify products with very low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). In the 2000s, CRI launched the Green Label Plus programs for carpet, adhesives, and cushion. These enhanced programs set higher standards for IAQ and ensure that customers are purchasing the very lowest emitting products available on the market. Using scientifically established standards, the Green Label Plus program symbolizes the carpet industry’s commitment to a creating a better indoor environment.
- Green Label Plus ensures that customers are purchasing the lowest emitting carpet, adhesive and cushion products on the market.
- CRI designed the Green Label Plus program for architects, builders, specifiers, and facility managers who want assurance that carpet, adhesive, and cushion products meet the most stringent criteria for low chemical emissions.
- Green Label Plus represents the fourth time the carpet industry has voluntarily enhanced the IAQ standard for its products.
